Real-world testing of the CARIN IG for Digital Insurance Card.
This project is intended to develop artifacts (FHIR implementation guides, code mappings, reference implementations, etc) to retrieve proof of insurance coverage information via FHIR when requested or shared by a Patient in order to create an electronic rendering of the insurance membership card within a digital application.
The objectives of this track are:
Test an Implementation Guide
Call for participants
Patients, Providers, Insurance companies, App developers
|In advance of the Connectathon we would ask participants to attend the Implementers Connection Calls and have signed up for the track ahead of the deadline. It is critical to attend the calls and sign up by the deadline as we will be matching implementers to ensure that everyone has someone to test the below Scenarios.|

Timeline of Upcoming Activities
Primary Testing Scenario #1: If time allows and there is sufficient interest, we may test the other scenarios.
Scenario #1: Overview
SMART Health Links
–Manually entering plan and policy information
–Uploading photos of their card
–e.g., Insurer prints SHL QR on physical card
–e.g., Insurer emails or messages SHL QR to patient
–e.g., Insurer hosts SHL through their online portal
–Use https://docs.smarthealthit.org/smart-health-links/spec and the CARIN IG data profile
–Display or send a QR code or link
–Consume a SHL from QR code or link, display and store it in app
–Provide user a way to copy, screenshot, or otherwise surface SHL for web checkin
–Provide user a way to share their QR code or link in web checkin flow
–Consume and validate SHL from QR code or link, display and confirm details
Data Profile/IG Questions
–The IG contains a lot of information, is there a minimized profile that would be still be valuable?
–How much more valuable/ what else can we accomplish in this workflow with the complete profile?
–Is there value to a signed digital version of just the core insurance card details?
–Are there UX trade-offs (e.g. being able to use a SMART Health Card vs Link) to a smaller profile?
Testing Scenario #4:
